Chauncey Billups – Unrestricted Sources close to Billups say he wants to remain with the Clippers beyond this season and that if he’s not in LA that retiring is more likely than adding another team on his resume. Billups has been instrumental as a coach on the floor for the younger Clipper guards and his imprint is evident in almost every facet of how the Clipper guards prepare for games. The Clippers will face some tough economic decisions, but retaining Billups for another year shouldn’t be a problem and don’t be surprised to hear that Chris Paul makes resigning Billups a condition on him signing his next deal. Billups is that important to the process. Some have suggested that the best move would be to make Billups a coach going forward, however, Billups laughs off the notion of his future being in a suit as a coach, although watching him interact with the younger guards he’s a natural; he just wants to keep playing.
He could make sense too. Maybe be interested if they gave him a starting job and no one else would.
